Testimonials

Glen Ballantyne - Principle Event Organiser At our 70th Anniversary VE day celebrations to find the right venue, band and caterers was one task. But to find someone who would deliver a speech, marking such a historical and poignant time in our history was another challenge. I met with Ronnie and discussed the content and the delivery of what I thought would be the central part of the evening. Ronnie excelled himself with the gravitas and historical content of the events of 70 years ago and throughout WW2. This was delivered to a well informed audience and veterans of WW2. Throughout his speech you could have heard a pin drop and he held everyone's undivided attention for over 20 minutes. On more than one occasion I have heard Ronnie make hilariously funny speeches and to have the ability to deliver at both ends of the spectrum is a rare quality.

Carole Hughes - Organiser of IPF Charity Event I have heard Ronnie Smith before and I asked him to be the MC & Auctioneer at my charity event at the Marriott Hotel recently in aid of IPF (Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis). Ronnie was an excellent MC keeping to the agenda and timings, he was also a witty auctioneer gaining additional monies from the audience and he contributed greatly to the evening.

Morag McIntosh - President Glasgow Rotary I asked Ronnie Smith to deliver the 'Immortal Memory' to the Glasgow Rotary and mixed audience, his research and knowledge of Burns shone through and he captivated the audience.

Sheena Glass - Chief Executive, Glasgow Old People’s Welfare Association It is worthwhile to listen to Ronnie Smith when he speaks publicly. His speeches are interesting and lighthearted and usually a bit educational.

John Williams – Director Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society In January Ronnie Smith came through from the west to provide the key performance of the ‘Immortal Memory’ at the annual Burn’s Night Dinner at the Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society in Edinburgh. Given the club is awash with members who are Burn’s experts and enthusiasts, Ronnie had a very knowledgeable and discerning audience. He won them all over, delivering an extremely well balanced discourse, cleverly marrying interest with humour. In particular the humour was well matched with the audience, featuring the particular Scottish humour of self deprecation. And what’s more he stuck to the time allocated to him!
